James Lehman, Award-Winning Author, Speaker, Workshop Leader, and a Life & Career Transition Coach, changes it up a bit and we discuss his book and what he’s focused on right now. It’s a slight diversion from the main topic of Inspired and Intentional business. However, it is about self management of your career which does align with employee accountability and engagement in their own career.
This 4th and first Thursday episode James will cover:
- Creating a career plan like a business plan.
- Why managing your career will become even more important in the “gig” economy.
Questions for this episode:
As a leader, how could you take the topics about career management and help your team take more command of their careers? Would this help your company?
If you’re undergoing a career transition, what could you do to take control over your career so you can find a place of meaning and purpose?
Perhaps coaching could help. With that in mind, James offered up an opportunity for one listener to take a free Energy Leadership assessment with an evaluation with James after he receives the results. I will accept entries during the next two weeks, from February 23rd to midnight March 5th. Go to inspiredandintentional.com/energy to register for the drawing.
Thank you so much for listening/reading and until next time, be inspired and intentional.

Gallup says 70% of US employees are disengaged from their work. This causes, what Ari Weinzweig calls an energy crisis in the workplace. Lost innovation, productivity and profits. Not to mention the tolls on the communities.
There are companies and organizations working to improve this. they are creating more open and collaborative work environments. They are realizing that treating people with dignity and providing meaningful work can be done while also running a financially solid organization.
My hope with this podcast is to inspire leaders, entrepreneurs, and those coming into leadership through transition, to make intentional choices to balance profit and social impact.

I’ve been asking for reviews of the podcast. While this is still important, my new call to action for listeners and readers is subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or Stitcher. A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I would have a drawing when I reached 100 subscribers. This isn’t an easy number to get at this point. Instead, my critical number will be when my episodes average 200 downloads. Right now, they’re at 51. When they hit an average of 200, I’ll have a drawing for a book on this topic.
